South Africa
I believe that everyone should experience a safari in Africa. Not only is it a chance to immerse oneself in the pristine beauty of the African wilderness, but it is also a chance to embrace the raw sense of adventure that comes in losing yourself in the unexpected magic that waits around every corner. Africa is a place of miracles and wonder, a place of stillness and primordial beauty. My passion for the outdoors started at a young age and was passed down from my father. This passion developed into a lifestyle, as I honed in my bush-skills and worked as a guide and tracker for several years in South Africa’s National Parks. I subsequently gained experience working for the world renowned Singita Game Reserves in Southern and East Africa. I thus have a thorough knowledge of the unique wilderness areas, and have cultivated a personal connection to its customs and its contours. This connection that I have developed to the mother continent of Africa has led me into actively participating in her conservation, particularly in creating awareness and raising funds for the Honorary Rangers’ Project, an anti-poaching initiative in the Kruger National Park. Based in Cape Town, I now offer a unique photographic experience, combining my knowledge as a guide and my skills as a photographer. This has led to me pioneering the video safari; I capture my client’s adventures on film and present it back to them in a beautifully crafted HD video. I believe that my special trait, besides for offering my expertise in guiding and photography, is my relationship with my guests. I have a warm personality that befits the intimate space that is shared on safari, and my knowledge of the African bush is extensive and specialised. Because of this, I am able to guide my clients wherever they wish to go, ensuring that they have both a comfortable and an unforgettable journey. I am able to take them closer than they’ve ever been before to the raw exhilarating wilderness of the African bush. This is the benefit of a private safari – you as a guest get carte blanche on what the wilderness has to offer. Both my private photographic safari and my video safari aim at creating a memorable visual diary of the trip. These packages are guaranteed in their aesthetic quality, and I pride myself in this promise. This ensures that my guests have beautiful means of reliving their trip in the decades to come. After all, memories are all we ever have, so we may as well work hard at making them!
